What is Most Important in Life

I have had a bunch of ideas bouncing around in my head lately, things I have wanted to share on my blog.  But today, there is one thing I cannot get out off my mind.  My sister's friend who is around 20 years old was just diagnosed with leukemia.  I don't want to disclose a lot of details since it doesn't need to be a public matter, and honestly I don't know many of the details.  What I do know is that I don't always focus on what is most important in life. 

Sometimes God gives you a little surprise, good or bad, to remind you that he is there, that we need him and we need the people in our lives.  Whether I do laundry tonight or not, whether I stay late at work or not, whether I do "what I'm supposed to do" or not - it doesn't really matter.  What matters the most is the relationships we have with other people and with God.  Sometimes I find myself getting caught up in a good book or my email inbox or a TV show, and I get in bed, realizing I was next to my husband all evening but I haven't given him a real, true kiss aside from a quick hello when we got home from work (I make sure to correct that immediately!). 

Think about the best days of your life - I would guess most, if not all, of them were spent with people you love.  Today has reminded me to never take my life and the wonderful people in it for granted.  Tonight I pray for my sister's friend and all my friends and family who are there for me, support me and make life truly meaningful.


  1. You managed to put into words the many feelings that I have had also. Cherish all the blessings in your life, especially all the "angels that God has placed for us on earth.

  2. Amen! :) Amazing. Seriously.

    Thank You Lord for my older sister, my role model!

  3. Eloquent and accurate. Each encounter and relationship is a blessing. I see people die frequently as part of "life". It only makes "sense" in His context. Dad
